We could watch Trevor Zegras shootout highlights all day.
Zegras scored another mesmerizing shootout goal on Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks. It’s just the latest addition to his jaw-dropping highlight reel in his young career.
The Ducks and Sharks played another entertaining affair Saturday after a wild first meeting on Thursday. This time around, the regulation wouldn’t be enough to settle the score.
With Anaheim and San Jose tied at the end of sixty minutes, the Ducks called on their most skilled forward as their first shooter in the skills competition. Trevor Zegras didn’t disappoint in the skills competition.
Zegras shows his ridiculous hands as he stickhandles on James Reimer before undressing the ex-Leaf goalie and finishing backhand top shelf. The broadcast had a beautiful replay angle to show the wizardry.

It’s mesmerizing watching his hands at ice level:
Zegras’ sweet mitts helped propel the Ducks to a 5-4 victory. Anaheim also has to thank Adam Henrique for the two points, as he scored a goal late in the third period with the goalie pulled to force overtime.
Zegras is already cementing himself as one of the greatest shootout players of all time. He’s scored eight career shootout goals on 13 attempts, which is good for 61.54%. His career NHL shootout percentage is second-best all-time (minimum 10 GP).
While shootout goals are great for the highlight reels, Zegras has also been getting the job done in regulation. He had another two assists Saturday to give him seven points (3G, 4A) in his past five games.
EA Sports clearly knew what they were doing putting Zegras on the cover of NHL 23. We’re still trying to comprehend how a player can stickhandle the puck that smoothly.
